NARS

NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadows

Hey Guys!

I was recently lucky enough to get the chance to try out some of the new NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadows, when you first look at the eyeshadows they look very metallic and you would think that would be how they apply, maybe a little too much? Well i was surprised! These eyeshadows have a really beautiful almost satin finish when applied onto the lids, I will say that the darker ones more so than the lighter shades as the lighter ones do tend to have more of a metallic effect. 

when swiping my brush into the miniature shadows i wasn’t sure how the pigmentation would transfer onto my lids, but again, i was surprised, rather impressed as i have never seen anything like it! The pigmentation of these shadows were of such a lovely consistency, very smooth and creamy, pigmented but not at all crumbly or chalky. just buttery. 

you can apply these with either your fingers, a brush, a big fluffy blending brush or wet. When applied wet, the pigmentation is even more vivd. Could that be possible right? Well try it for yourself and see! I love these eyeshadows. I have the shades Subra and Dione. Subra is more of a rustic plum shade, Perfectly described as a ‘black orchid’ great for Autumn/Winter. This is my favourite shadow, its the most pigmented and just complements my eye colour! Dione is one I’ve heard a lot of bloggers talk about recently, its a really pretty champagne beige shade with underlying taupe elements.

I do find with these, that if you’re planning to wear them both day and through to night, use a primer and maybe a slight touch up would be needed but other than that, i can’t say anything bad about these little beauties.

If you haven’t given these a swatch yet, i recommend you do (or don’t) as you may just fall in love with them! These eyeshadows currently retail for £21 UK.

My White Foundation Miracle – Stargazer

Hey Guys!

So todays post is about a foundation that i discovered.

I was looking through my makeup draws the other day and trying to find something that was in-between my usual self, my tanned self, my pale self and everything in between that! I struggled. I am one of those makeup artists that hate to have an obvious mistake when it comes to picking the correct colour, but we’ve all been there! My favourite foundation is the NARS Sheer Glow,  but again, i purchased this so i can apply it when i self tanned. So inevitably, any other time of year i want to use it, it won’t work AT ALL!

So i decided to have a browse through the internet, checking out other peoples blogs, and reviews on white foundations. This is when i came across multiple people raving about the Stargazer White Foundation. 

This foundation is one of the best things I’ve purchased, not only does it work perfectly for mixing with foundations because it is a medium to thick consistency that means you don’t have to use a lot of product in order to see any results (like the MAC face and body) but its for Normal to Dry skin! I HAD to buy!

When this Foundation arrived (which by the way was a lot earlier than expected) I immediately tried it out with my sheer glow. Another amazing thing about this product is that it has very subtle illuminating particles within it that prevent my ‘dewy skin’ foundations from going matte. (which you’ll all probably know i hate). The only downside to this foundation is that the applicator is a lick fiddly, but i can work around that. it would have been better with maybe a pump.

It’s a great foundation and for only £4.49 of amazon, you cannot complain! You can add as little or as much of the white as you want to create the perfect shade for you all year round and I’ve used it nearly every day since!

Face Of The Day – First Blog Post

Hello Everyone!

This is my first ever blog post! Ive been wanting to do this for a while but never really known where to start, or how everything works. I am so used to putting myself into the public eye via Youtube, which for me now, is a comfortable place. I know how it works, i know my content but here, i again have felt that uneasy feeling of the unknown! I have tried a few times here and there in the past to post the odd one or two but they have always never been up to quite those standards i wanted, so they got deleted!

So here we are with my first blog post, and i thought it would be safe to do a ‘Face of The Day’ post, but expect to see all things from Beauty, Hair, Fashion, Food and life on here!

Okay so into the actually post. For my base i have been loving the MAC Face and Body foundation because its so lightweight and sheer but also give that even coverage and a slightly dewy finish (which is you watch my youtube channel, you will know I’m obsessed with). This is in the shade N2 Which for me at this time of year when the suns out and about works fine. Next is my concealer, its no news to you guys that this is now my most loved concealer of the bunch, its so creamy, radiant and lasts such a long time. Its so worth all the hype it gets guys!

For my Highlighters i chose two, NARS Copacabana, and Topshop Glow in Polished. There is just something about Copacabana that when applied either on its own or mixed in with foundation that just gives the most perfect dewy illuminating finish! As For my eyes i opted for a much broken (oops) shadow from L’Oreal, its one of their new collections and i must say its incredible, the buttery consistency right down to the pigmentation is perfect! This is in the shade Nude 200.

All i have on my lips today is MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Shanghai Spice. A really Pretty Pinky, peachy nude shade, it really does resemble to colour of spices.
